Paul played one year of college soccer at Clemson University in 1996. Following his freshman year, he elected to turn professional, signing a contract with the Toronto Lynx while attending college at the local York University. After playing one season with the Lynx, where he led the team in scoring with 8 goals and 2 assists, Stalteri was noticed by a scout from Werder Bremen and purchased from the team. After three years in the reserves, Paul made his debut with the club in August 2001, scoring in the first game of the season against Energie Cottbus. During the 2001-2 season, Stalteri established his role in the first team of the club, and went on to cement his role as a regular in the 2002-3 season. In 2003-4, Stalteri became the first Canadian player to win the Bundesliga when he helped Werder Bremen to the championship.
